7-Eleven Launches a New Range of Deli Sandwiches

Not the kind of thing you'd usually expect to find at 7-Eleven.

When you think of 7-Eleven, it’s fair to say you’re probably not thinking about a range of hand-made deli sandwiches made fresh, you’re more expecting pre-packaged egg salad sandwiches and alike. Recently, 7-Eleven has launched Johnny’s Deli, a range of hot sandwiches that are heated on demand. And they’ll soon be found all around Australia.

“Our customers want a convenient range of delicious food choices available fast for every meal and any snack occasion across the day,” said 7-Eleven head of food, Emma Metcalf-King.

“With Johnny’s Deli, we’ve created a bespoke range of hot sandwiches that are heated on demand in specialist ovens to ensure customers can enjoy a delicious hot sandwich, with gooey melted cheese and toasty bread that’s hot in about 90 seconds.”

Johnny’s Deli has launched initially at 7-Eleven West Richmond, at 125 Bridge Road, Richmond.

The Johnny’s Deli range includes:

  • The Schnitty ($11) | Crumbed chicken with triple smoked ham, rich Napoli sauce, and tasty cheese on a brioche bun.
  • Johnny’s Reuben ($11) | Pastrami with sauerkraut, pickles, swiss cheese, dijon mustard, and mayonnaise, in a crunchy ciabatta roll.
  • The Falafel ($10) |Falafels, roasted pumpkin, gooey cheese and herbed fetta spread on a Turkish roll. Vegetarian friendly.
  • Meatball Sub ($11) | Beef meatballs with a rich red sauce, spinach and pesto in a ciabatta roll.
  • Tuna Melt ($9) | Tuna, capers, crunchy spring onion and capsicum with mayonnaise on a milk bun.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
